“Very clean, great service, beautiful location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2012

We really enjoyed our stay at this Pousada! Highlights: spacious, clean room, simple furnsihings made for a relxing atmosphere, lots of space to unpack, spacious bathroom and more shelving there which was very useful, hammock outside the door and gorgeous views over the wooded valley below. The customer service was great and the fresh, varied breakfast with eggs-to-order was much appreciated! The price of the accommodation was so reasonable and really good value for money!

Room Tip: Choos a room upstairs: Number 9 was great!

had a very pleasant and relaxing stay at the pousada, room was of a good size, clean and the bed extremely confortable. my favourite moment has been relaxing on the hammoc on the balcony before going out for the evening. the pousada is very tastefully decorated and has a air of understated elegance. distance to centre of town is easily covered and the street is very well lit at night. The owner has been very helpfull with suggestions on what to do and how to get around.All in all it was an excellent base for exploring such a stunning location and definitely would chose to go back if in Buzios again.

Room Tip: downstairs closer to the pool, but if that ldoes not interest to you i would suggest upstairs becaus...

La Pitanga is beautiful and has perfect positioning, as it's close both to the amazing ferradura beach (if i remember the name correctly) and the city centre. Rooms are stylish and clean, and the breakfast was very tasty with fresh juice. And, of course, a very nice and friendly owner! We had an amazing weekend, thank you! :)

This pousada is great, great rooms, small, clean, A/C, Freezer, pool, garden.

The bets thing is its cost considering everything in Buzios is very expensive.

15Min walking distance to downtown and 10 min to Ferradura Beach. Dont miss taking the day trip to Arrial du Cabo....beautiful trip...

Vila Pitanga is OK, but not great. The owner is nice, but that alone doesn't make a great hotel.

Problems:

- The swimming pool sucks. A funky prefab fiberglass tub is not a real swimming pool.
- The rooms are small (especially downstairs).
- The walk to town is not terrible, but seems a bit too long coming home at night.
- Buy some new towels, please - the towels at the hotel feel like drying off with sandpaper.

Not an unpleasant place, but Tripadvisor's Choice? You must be kidding me. Not even close to what it needs to be to win an award. My advice -find a place with a nice rooms, a real pool and closer to town.

DSamis, Manager at Pousada Vila Pitanga, responded to this review, February 17, 2012
Adequate but not great." Fair enough. No problem here. However, the second part, which says: "WHO IS WRITING THESE REVIEWS?" This is not acceptable. It is offensive to our team and our fantastic real guests. All Vila Pitanga's excellent reviews are authentic. We are very grateful to our 2011 and 2012 prizes and very happy to carry on providing a Good Service and the Best Price.
Thanks. Best Regards, Denise

Was staying at Vila Pitanga for 3 days - and had an amazing stay there. Denise is making a huge difference by being extremely service-minded. She recommended me great local restaurants to go to and even helped me out with booking and picking up a ticket for the bus to Rio. Rooms very nice & clean and the atmosphere in the lobby and at breakfast was great. I can highly recommend both couples and singles to stay at Villa Pitanta. Best regards, Ole (from Denmark)
